Applying for Tourists visa while waiting 🤷🏽‍♀️

You can, but expect your chances for denial to be increased since you already have an intent to immigrate, and that is a common reason for denial for a tourist visa.  You must currently have strong ties to your home country in order to be eligible for a tourist visa, so gather plenty of evidence that you will have reason to return home before your visa expires.

I have certainly seen people in your situation apply.

Hi, has anyone spouse applied for a tourist visa (B2) while waiting for an approval form USCIS? Now that USCIS is taking at least 7 months to process, I was hoping that my spouse could come for a visit.

You have nothing at risk, but the $160.00......There will be no effect on the immigrant visa.

You can always apply for a visitor's visa even if you have a petition for you in the works. The chances of getting the visitor's visa is very low but the only way to know for sure is to apply and find out.

My wife got denied today. I wasnt surprised though. Thought we should give it a shot to see if my wife can be here for 10 days for us to celebrate her 30th birthday together. We still in the process so nothing lost.

CO: Where are you going in the US?

My Wife: answered

CO: How did your husband got to the US? Was it through sch, work etc?

My Wife: answered

CO: you are going to visit your husband?

My wife: yes

CO: You are a nurse?

My wife: yes

CO: Your immigration petition filed by your husband has been approved right?

My wife: Yes

 **CO goes back to talk to another CO then came back with the Refusal paper

The journey is still on👌
